Founded in 2008, the North American Vehicle Rescue Association (NAVRA) is a not-for-profit organization committed to preparing today’s rescuers for tomorrow. To accomplish this, we focus on two key elements: the general population (that’s you!) and all emergency medical, fire service, and law enforcement professionals.
By teaching the public about prevention and safety methods, we’re able to target accidents before they even happen. However, where prevention’s reach ends, preparation’s extends. Our experienced industry expert members work tirelessly to train all of our emergency responders with innovative techniques, advanced equipment, and authentic competitions—all of which are based on the NFPA 1670 guidelines and exceeds the State of Florida for Fire Service Instructors standards. Fortunately, we’re able to do this by integrating corporate support into public service and subsidizing training costs with sponsorships and donations.
And just like in any emergency situation, there’s never just one responder! That’s why we work with the World Rescue Organization (WRO), an international organization who strives to improve new vehicle hazard awareness to reduce secondary injuries to patients and rescuers.
